Re: More photos I got from Robert's son at his funeral yesterday
Yes Anne. Ian was a great friend of mine at school and we went on a few bike rides together. I went into his house a few times in Dean Terrace, Monkton. I always remember that his mother was an agent for Spirella corsets and had a poster in the porch window. In more recent times I have been in touch with his son who was a radio presenter with Radio Hallam, Sheffield. He worked under the heading of 'Big John' and it was he who told me of Ian's death a few years ago. I am sure you must know that Ian was a churchman ...in Leicester I think. So sadly, we never got the chance to meet again.
